I am a self taught artist, or I guess I should say I was born with artistic ability, as I have been painting since I was a very small child.
My three sisters all have artistic ability as well, but neither of our parents were artistic, although my mother was artistic in our home.
While at school, I usually won any art competitions between our school & another school in the Northeast of Tasmania where I lived for 16 years.
I was quite a prolific painter when younger, but mostly gave my work away to any friend or relative that admired it! Several of my aunties have work of mine….usually a favourite scene of theirs.
I painted with oils a few times over the years, but not often. My work now is painted using acrylics, as I didn’t have the patience to wait for oils to dry!
I have won several art awards over the years, some of them being the Peoples Choice at the Hobart Show, and the Mayors Choice twice at Watermark exhibitions in the Cygnet Town Hall.
I am currently the treasurer of the Huon Art Exhibition Group, which keeps me rather busy, and an exhibiting member of ASMA (Australian Society of Marine Artists).
When I’m not in the Lovett gallery, you will mostly find me in my garden at Eggs & Bacon Bay cottage, which opens to the public annually with Open Gardens Australia.
